Form follows function at Saturday School (Feb edition)

15 February 2020 12:00—18:00

Saturday School is a day of creative workshops.

Every month, we will fill the spaces of Civic House with workshops led by practitioners working across art, design and sustainability. Our aim is to create a stimulating environment for testing new ideas, learning through making and sharing skills and knowledge.

Spend the day developing a new skill, exploring a practice or learning about new topics and subjects.

Then from 7pm, share a meal with everyone who’s taken part in the workshops, served by the Civic House Kitchen team.

From 9pm onwards, Civic House will host After School Club: Valentines with Subcity ♥ with:
OMESA (Live)
Murmuru – (https://subcity.org/shows/murmuru/)
Sticky Jam Sessions – (https://subcity.org/shows/stickyjam/)
Club Action – (https://subcity.org/shows/clubaction/)

Subcity Radio presents their Valentine’s DJ workshop, lead by some of the stars of the station! Aimed predominately at POC, queer people and womxn, this free(!!!) class will run through and iron out all your DJing starter fears!

Local legend Heatnavi (aka Aposympiesis) will walk you through the steps to get your tracks from computer to USB and deck friendly. Babestation’s dynamic duo will show you the ropes on the CDJs, whilst Angel Delight’s Mark will take it back to basics with a tour around the records.

Later on, Junglehussi and 2K-OK will run a more advanced masterclass, showing how they perform their sets. You can catch Junglehussi in action when they play the club for real later in the evening!

Those participating in either class will then have the opportunity to practise their new-found skills on our open decks, before settling down for a hot date meal!
